A Primer on Bourbon

Bourbon, Something to Celebrate

National Bourbon Day celebrates one of the most popular spirits in the United States.  Bourbon was invented in the United States – in fact, for a whiskey to be called a bourbon, it must be from America!  Most of the bourbon we consume is made in Kentucky, but others are found in Tennessee and a few other states.  Taking at least two years of aging in American White Oak barrels, bourbon creates a number of by-products when distillers are done with the barrels.  For instance, old barrels are used to flavor soy sauce and scotch whiskys.  Barrels are also used for furniture and firewood when the time comes for retirement, since they can only be used once.

In 1964, President Lyndon Baines Johnson signed an Act of Congress signifying bourbon as the Official Spirit of America.  We think it’s a fun way to celebrate the good ol’ U. S. of A.!

At Delysia, our Bourbon Truffles can be found in the Spirits Collection, along with our rum and scotch flavor varieties.  Delysia’s smooth chocolate pairs well with bourbon’s equally sweet notes.  And, you can compare the bourbon’s unique flavor to the other boozy flavors in the set.

Since National Bourbon Day falls so close to Father’s Day, this would make an excellent Father’s Day gift as well for dad!  Bourbon is a great way to let your father know that you love him.  Pair the collection with a bottle of your favorite bourbon, like Garrison Brothers Distillery, and you have yourself a very happy father.

All in all, National Bourbon Day is a day to celebrate.  So, crack open a bottle, unwrap a box of Delysia’s Spirit Collection, and celebrate America’s spirit!
